Vestas receives order for 109 turbines
in the United States


Vestas has received an order for 109 units of the V82 1,65 MW wind turbine in the U.S. The wind turbines have a total installed capacity of 180 MW.

The order has been placed by the North American division of E.ON Climate & Renewables, a global developer, owner and operator of renewable energy projects. E.ON Climate & Renewables is a global market unit of E.ON AG which entered the North American market through the acquisition of Airtricity North America.

"With this order, we are further developing Vestas' existing working relationship with E.ON in Europe. We are extremely pleased that we are now continuing this working relationship in the U.S.," said Jens Søby, president of Vestas Americas A/S. "In 2007, the U.S. was the world's largest annual market for wind power and this order supports our positive expectations for the future development of the country's great wind resources."

E.ON Climate & Renewables operates a wind portfolio of over 1100 MW and has over 3000 MW of wind generating capacity in advanced stages of development.

"We are very pleased to be working with Vestas on this project; the V82 1,65 MW is a machine with a strong track record and is a good addition to our portfolio," said Declan Flanagan, CEO North America for E.ON Climate & Renewables.

The order comprises supply and commissioning of the wind turbines as well as a five-year service and maintenance agreement. Delivery of the turbines is scheduled to begin at the end of 2008 and will continue through the first quarter of 2009. Commissioning is expected to be completed mid-2009.
